Convening & Engagement Services

Partnerships involve people and organizations with different knowledge bases, cultures, power, community status, and identities, all of which can make effective co-working difficult. Impact Partners understands these differences and works to identify alignment in order to seek mutually beneficial impact.

New programs, initiatives, projects or policies often fail due to lack of buy-in or participation from targeted audiences. Community apathy leaves many decision makers scratching their heads asking, "We engaged the community and asked them what they needed and wanted. Why aren't they showing up for the programs"?

Impact Partners utilizes a trademarked three-question Community Passion Index during the community engagement phase to predict the community's readiness to act on the agreed investment priorities. We carefully pivot the strategy accordingly, saving you money, time and the embarrassment of community apathy.
